Tonight, in the wake of the 60th anniversary of one of the most profound and enduring mysteries in American history - the assassination of President John F. Kennedy - we embark on a journey into one of the most chilling and controversial chapters of the 20th century. This year marks six decades since that fateful day in Dallas, a day that forever altered the course of a nation and left an indelible mark on the global consciousness.
In an exclusive and possibly startling revelation, we are joined by James E. Files, a man who has stepped forward with claims that shatter the conventional narrative. Files, now finally free after 25 years in prison, asserts that he was the infamous 'Grassy Knoll Shooter,' a CIA/Mob assassin directly involved in the military-style ambush that led to the tragic demise of the 35th President of the United States. His story promises to peel back layers of secrecy and provide an insider's view of the events that unfolded on November 22, 1963.
Accompanying Files is author Pamela Ray Files, who has worked closely with him to chronicle this dark tale in their book, "Primary Target: JFK - How the CIA Used the Chicago Mob to Kill the President." Together, they offer a narrative that spans from the original plot to kill JFK in Chicago to the execution of the plan in Dallas, challenging the findings of the Warren Commission and inviting us to reconsider what we thought we knew about that day.
Our panel tonight is not just a discussion; it's a confrontation with history, with secrets long buried and truths long obscured. It's an opportunity to hear a story that has been hidden in the shadows, narrated by those who claim to have been the architects and witnesses of history.
Prepare to be taken to the edge of your seat, as we unravel a tale that has haunted the American psyche for sixty years. This is a show you cannot afford to miss. Tonight's discussion promises to be more than just an exploration of events; it's an opportunity to gain new perspectives on a story that has been at the heart of American discourse for sixty years. Don't miss this compelling episode, where history is not just recounted, but reconsidered.
